Boards in Gear Webinar

You joined a nonprofit board because you care about the organization’s mission. You want your contributions as a board member to positively affect the issues addressed by the organization. As a board, you want your nonprofit to thrive and make a difference in the communities served by your organization. Whether your nonprofit is just starting or is long established, getting your board in gear can help put your organization on a clear path forward.
This interactive, virtual workshop led by Pamela Oaks is based on the Boards in Gear resources developed in partnership with some of our state’s leading board experts. You will leave with concrete action steps, tools, and connections.
The virtual workshop will cover:
  1. Board responsibilities
  2. Board operations
  3. Composition and development
  4. Fundraising
  5. Advocacy

If you are registering after April 11, we will send you the recording from the Boards in Gear webinar when you register. 

Follow-up Session

Following the Boards in Gear webinar, join facilitators Jennifer Chang and Julia Hunter for a 2-hour, in-person session as we go deeper on the topics of connection to cause, responsibilities, composition and development, operations, and fundraising. This is an opportunity for those who attended the webinar to come together for an in-person, interactive session. Through facilitated conversation and activities, compare your lived experiences with the materials covered and ask questions to help get your board in gear.

Light snacks will be provided.

Note – This registration is intended for charitable organizations serving Whidbey Island who will attend the April 11 Boards in Gear webinar and April 24 in-person follow-up session. We ask that you do not register more than two people for the webinar + follow up session to allow as many organizations as possible to participate.  If you have questions, please contact Maureen Rice at [email protected].
